    Lew Zealand is just awesome. He and Gonzo really represent the craziness of the muppets in my opinion.

    Uncle Deadly. He's the reason I am here right now. Without him, I would have never discovered The Muppet Show.

    i liked it when he did camilla, that was when i knew gonzo had a girlfriend, that was his own.

    Floyd and Uncle Deadly. Though, if you couldn't figure out I'm a Floyd fangirl I feel very sorry for you

    Love them all, but I always had a soft spot for Robin. Love the Muppet Show episode with Bernadette Peters with him singing "Just One Person". That song has been playing back in my mind since I've heard the news about Jerry Nelson's passing... (((((((((((((((((

    Definetely Robin. Floyd and his announcer voice right after that.

    This is a huge loss for the entire world, not just The Muppet universe. What a sad day. I voted for The Count, but to be honest I equally love Floyd, Lew, Harry, Robin, Gobo and I thought he did Statler or Waldorf. I cant remember which. I never had a chance to meet the man, but all the stories I have read today and in the past, make me believe he was an amazing man, as seems to be the case with anyone related to the Hensons. Maybe not by blood, but they are all family. Jerry Nelson, we love you and will miss you greatly. Say hi to Jim for all of us.

    I'm going to go with Robin because one of my earliest childhood memories in general (not just Muppets) was "They call me Sir Robin the Brave, and history one day will rave..." :)

    Tough choice. Lately my favorite Jerry character has been The Trash Heap, but all of his characters were wonderful. Even little one-shots or Anything People. :')
    It's sad that he passed away, but he lived a great life. One to remember through and through.

    Robin and Gobo... I'd probably rank Gobo second, though, for the reason that I've "known" Robin since I was a child but I've only gotten into Fraggle Rock within the last year. (It really is hard to choose a favorite, I must add!)

    Thinking about it now, Herry (who isn't listed as an option) seems to epitomise so many of Jerry's characters: Bold and potentially-intimidating, but always displaying a sweetness, a weakness, a vulnerability that makes the character endure.

    Sorry guys, for some reason there's just so many characters he performed, some (like Herry and Uncle Deadly) had just slipped my mind at the moment. :oops:

    I'd go with The Count since it was the first character of Mr. Nelson's I was introduced to as a child. Though I have gotta admit...WOW, looking at this list...and not counting other characters he did (Herry Monster, anyone), Mr. Nelson had a wide and diverse range of characters. Quite impressive.

    I said Gobo because I was more into The Fraggles as a kid then The Muppets.

    First of all, hi, I'm new! Second of all, when I was little the Count was one of my favourite parts of Sesame Street. Robin's adorable and Floyd's AWESOME! So, probably the three of them.
